A key word that you will see:

Fragmentation: a mental process where a person becomes intensely emotionally focused on one aspect of themselves, such as “I am angry” or “no one loves me,” to the point where all thoughts, feelings and behavior demonstrate this emotional state, in which, the person does not or is unable to take into account the reality of their environment, others or themselves and their resources. This is a term that my therapist and I use and is on the continuum of dissociation.

A Charlie Brown Christmas!!!

Of course, my favorite Christmas show is left for today. Charles M. Schulz, creator of Peanuts, being a Christian he fought to keep this part of the script on air. Obviously, the network was concerned. However, they did not need to be and there is a clause in the contract that it can never be edited out.

Luke 2:9-14 (New American Standard Bible)

And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened.
But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people;
for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
"This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased."

Hello there! I know it's been a while and I just wanted to say hi and I'm back. Hope you're having a great Christmas

I watched the documentary on "Sparky". I'm so glad he fought for this part of the script to remain in the show. The other show I'm fond of is the Little Drummer Boy. My best memories of Christmas are not of Santa and candy, but of family and meaning.

Did you know Charles Schultz suffered severe and debilitating depression? It's no wonder he is a favorite of many of us.

I also knew about Charles Shultz depression. It is very common in the creatives. It is why most of us paint or whatever it is we do to purge ourselves of what lies within needing to get out. It is how I got through yesterday's post Christmas slump. And it worked. You can see the painting in progress on my blog if you want.
There is something about depression that goes unacknowledged in this time....maybe I'll try and write a post about it someday...

Happy week between the two holidays CC. Why is it that we lump them altogether as we do? Winter would be much better if we spread them all out.

@jeff. Thank you. Blessings of peace, joy, calm and love to you too!!

@Snow White Queen. Welcome back and happy holidays.

@Border Life. I remember that show! Those are important memories.

@etta. Yes, I knew. It also runs way back into his family history...genetics or environment or both? Still, he was able to really touch hearts and strike a resonance that others could relate to on a really massive scale.

@jeff. Yes, I would like them spread out, but then you wouldn't get a sort of two week break.

I often wonder if the treatment and medications available now were available earlier if we would have had a Picasso, Munch, Van Gogh or Beethoven. And, the list is huge filled with artist in all types of media.
